SECTIONS OF FOUR ROADS TO BE RESURFACED THIS SPRING
OCEAN COUNTY will reconstruct and resurface portions of four roadways this spring.
“The spring is our busy season when it comes to road improvements,” said Freeholder Deputy Director John P. Kelly,
liaison to the Ocean County Engineer’s Office. “As soon as the weather clears our crews and contractors will be out there
ensuring that our road network is as safe as it can possibly be.”
On tap for this spring are milling and paving projects at the following locations:
Each project will mill 2 inches of asphalt and add 2 inches of new pavement. When that work is done, the road surfaces will
be striped and marked.
- Intersection of Hope Chapel Road and South Cooks Bridge Road, Lakewood Township.
- Cross Street between Massachusetts and Route 9, Lakewood Township. A distance of about 0.6 miles.
- Burnt Tavern Road between Burresville and Van Zile roads, Brick Township. A distance of about 0.4 miles.
- Route 527 from Bennetts Mills Road to Route 195, Jackson Township. A distance of 3.3 miles.
“With 621 miles of county roads and 259 bridges and culverts, we are constantly monitoring and maintaining our road
network,” said Freeholder Director James F. Lacey.
The estimated cost of all four projects in $970,000, said Lacey, who is also liaison to the Ocean County Road Department.
A contract for the work is expected to be awarded early this spring. The work should be completed by late spring.
